--THIS IS FOR THE VERIZON DROID RAZR--

Go here for the test files for international version: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=11

I have enough confirmations that I can now confirm this is working, However the on screen controls appear not to be launching currently, but webtop launches.

What this mod does:
Quote:

It removes the device ID string check from PortalApp, and enables the webtop option in DockService. Replacing these two apk files effectively allows the webtop to launch without proprietary hardware.

What this means to you:
Quote:

Webtop mode over any HDMI without an expensive dock.

Installation:

Method 1: Flashable ZIP
Quote:

Flash THIS zip.

Method 2: ADB install
Quote:

Download the attached apk files.
First Get the files to the device and remount /system as rw:

Code:
adb push DockService.apk /mnt/sdcard/
adb push PortalApp.apk /mnt/sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
Backup the original files:
Code:
mv /system/app/DockService.odex /system/app/DockService.odex.bak
mv /system/app/PortalApp.odex /system/app/PortalApp.odex.bak
cp /system/app/DockService.apk /system/app/DockService.apk.bak
cp /system/app/PortalApp.apk /system/app/PortalApp.apk.bak
Copy the modded files over fix permissions and reboot:
Code:
cp /mnt/sdcard/DockService.apk /system/app
cp /mnt/sdcard/PortalApp.apk /system/app
chmod 644 /system/app/DockService.apk
chmod 644 /system/app/PortalApp.apk
reboot

You are awesome!! Thank You. As soon as I find a spare HDMI port on my TV I'm installing this.

Edit: Is there a way to revert back to stock without doing a ND restore. Only for warranty purposes of course, can't imagine anyone would even know though. <<Ignore that.

Just installed it, and on the bionic after connecting to the tv, the phone became a mouse. Here the screen goes black and doesn't respond to touch.

That's a good sign at least. Did you install via the flash method or the adb method?

That sucks stevessvt, maybe try installing via adb instead and see what happens.

I really want to try it on my GSM RAZR... Don't know what the difference would be. Anyone...?

EDIT:

My stock DockService.apk is 109kb - odex is 173kb, the PortalApp.apk is 1.21mb - odex is 591kb

Can anyone confirm the Verizon file sizes for me?

Try this one with method 2 for the international version: http://www.cheatersedge.org/android/RazrWebtopMod.rar

I'll try to look into the on screen mouse/keyboard issue. It may be slow going seeing as I don't actually have one of these devices to test on.
